Why should you use a soap dish?

In the pursuit of an eco-conscious lifestyle, we know that every small choice counts. One often overlooked yet impactful choice is the use of a soap dish. Choosing a soap dish that is plastic-free, reusable or biodegradable over a disposable alternative is an easy way to avoid contributing to the production of plastic. Here are five reasons why you should always use a soap dish.

1 - A soap dish prolongs the life of your soap
Let's face it – nobody likes a slimy, melting bar of soap. When your soap sits in a pool of water, it quickly loses its shape and integrity, leading to a shorter lifespan. By using a soap dish, you can keep your soap dry between uses. This simple action not only prevents wastage but also ensures your soap lasts longer, saving you money in the long run.

2 - A soap dish helps cut out plastic waste
In a world drowning in plastic pollution, every effort to reduce plastic waste is crucial. Traditional liquid soap usually comes packaged in plastic containers, contributing to the global plastic problem. By switching to soap bars and using a soap dish, you eliminate the need for plastic packaging. Our beautiful Elliqua Cleansing Body Soap Bars are the perfect addition to your eco-friendly bathroom. Take a step towards a zero-waste lifestyle by embracing the simplicity and sustainability of soap bars and choose an elegant soap dish to complement your favorite one.

3 - A soap dish can help reduce water usage
Believe it or not, using a soap dish can contribute to water conservation. When your soap bar has a dedicated spot to rest with proper drainage, you won't need to spend time rinsing away soapy residue with excess water. This not only saves water but also aligns with eco-conscious living.

4 - A soap dish is aesthetically pleasing as well as being functional
Soap dishes aren’t just a functional necessity; they are an opportunity to enhance the aesthetic appeal of your bathroom. With plenty of eco-friendly, stylish options available, you can choose a soap dish that complements your bathroom decor while making a positive impact. A thoughtfully selected soap dish adds a touch of style to your bathroom while supporting your eco-friendly goals. Choose a soap dish made from bamboo, wood or a metal such as brass.

5 - A soap dish prevents soap residue getting on surfaces
Have you ever noticed how soap scum accumulates on your bathroom surfaces? A soap dish acts as a barrier, preventing soap residue from adhering to countertops or sinks. This not only keeps your bathroom cleaner but also reduces the need for harsh chemical cleaners. Opt for a soap dish, and let cleanliness and sustainability go hand in hand in your home.
